Shit, shower, and shave (the British military called it "ablutions") was a phrase that originated in WWI, where the US military tried to "train" soldiers to perform certain functions ( to shit, shower, and you guessed it) in the morning so as to not be interrupted during actual combat (WWI was primarily a "daylight" war). By the end of WWII, combat was a 24 hour event, and they could never actually TRAIN the body to crap on command, so the practice was dropped. I've never heard anyone use it who wasn't a veteran of WWII. My dad (a WWII marine) used to say it in the morning and assumed that I (A Vietnam vet) knew what he was talking about. I just thought to myself "gee, dad, that's a weird thing to share..."

Originating in the U.S. Army of WWII, this is the shorthand slogan to describe the hygiene preparation an enlisted soldier must do to ready himself for a military inspection by superiors.

"Shine" refers to the careful and thorough polishing of one's black military boots.

Now it has entered civilian use to mean preparation for any important social event in which one must look good, often abbreviated nowadays to just "shit, shave and shower".
